: but their response left gun control advocates reeling. we'll talk to the profit n.r.a., wayne keene. and we'll hear from senator mark warner of virginia, and kay bailey hutchison of texas. we'll also talk to the first black senator from the south since reconstruction, newly designated south carolina senator tim scott. plus, we'll hear from actor ben affleck on, among other things, reports he may seek the senate seat being vacated by john kerry. who has just been nominated to be the next secretary of state. >> well, one never knows. i'm not one to get into conjecture. >> schieffer: why not? we do, because this is "face the nation." captioning sponsored by cbs from cbs news in washington, "face the nation" with bob schieffer. >> schieffer: and good morning, again. we start this morning with david keene, who is the president of the national rifle association. friday the n.r.a. made its first public station since the newtown shooting and the reaction from the gun control vacation was scathing, no reaction there. lloyd grove of the "daily beast" summed up the reaction by saying the reviews were so bruta
is rushing to resurrect a bill on gun control. the most responsible set of comments came from the n.r.a. which said at the beginning when the events begin unfolding on tv let's wait for all the facts to come in. i'm calling as a former v.a. homeless outreach worker in rest l.a. one third of america's homeless are military veterans. every one of them could be off the street with mental health problems and so forth if the v.a. would process the claims that have been four and a half years delayed. we sue the v.a. in the ninth u.s. circuit court of appeals in may of last year. the government under obama and holder appealed that win before the three justices panel in may of last year to the full court which set aside our victory and veterans are now back to square one with no mental health issues from a v.a. under a former four-star army general who refuses to process our benefits claim. host: ok. here is paul on twitter. my question is how will balm care -- obama care address the shortage in our country? the "new york times," front page this morning, signaling openness to limits. senator jo
friend and colleague, care lynn mccarthy. close the gun show loophole. for starters, things that n.r.a. members agree with. let's care as much about real guns as we do about toy gun consumer protection. to start us down the road of making our children safer by treating children's gun safety like their auto safety. all the air bags, anti-drunk driving campaigns, child seats, driver education, careful licensing, it slashed the accident rate but it didn't eliminate them altogether. we can't imagine a world without these protections for our families. let's see if we can imagine a world where our children are safer from gun violence. and then make it happen. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman yields. the chair recognizes the gentleman from pennsylvania, mr. murphy, for five minutes. mr. murphy: madam speaker, i rise today with a heavy heart, to honor petty officer nicholas , a person who sacrificed his life in the most honorable of ways, to protect and save the life of another human being. his life was a testament to the core values of the united states navy, honor, courage and commitme

american has second amendment rights and the ability to hunt is part of our culture. i had an nra rating of an a but enough is enough. >> another area senator who says he may now support tougher gun control measures is west virginia senator joe manchin. the democrat famously fired a rifle in one of his campaign ads to demonstrate his support of second amendment rights. >>> one person is hospitalized and several armed suspects are on the run this morning after a shooting in fort washington, maryland. prince george's county police say the victim called to report a home invasion. when officers arrived at the home near camelot way, they found a man had been shot in the back and robbed of jewelry and money. investigators say the armed men ran out a window. the victim is expected to survive. >>> this morning prince william county police are searching for the man they say is responsible for a sexual assault in the woodbridge area. investigators say yesterday just after 3:00, a 15-year-old girl was attacked inside her home on echo court. we're looking at a composite sketch of the suspect. she to
instructions on how to shoot a .22 rifle from an n.r.a. trained supervisor at my camp, at summer camp. and i wasn't a bad shot. i won a couple of those merit badges for marksman and sharpshooter. and a few years ago, i had the ability to visit with my colleague -- our colleague, ben nelson. he took me out pheasant hunting. i really enjoyed the experience. so we have to acknowledge that guns are a way of life and that the second amendment has a rightful place in the constitution. that you cannot interpret the first, third, fourth, fifth, sixth amendments broadly as possible and say the second amendment should be seen through the pinhole of militias, it only affects militias. that's only fair. but then we have to have our colleagues on the other side acknowledge that, yes, there's a second amendment right. and, by the way, the heller decision now makes that the law of the land so i hope our folks who are progun realize that no one's going to take their guns away. before the heller decision, you know, there was a view, every bit of gun control is a way to eventually confiscate the hunting rifle
